Local school scores high with ACT


FOREST CITY, Iowa – It’s the fifth straight year that Forest City students have ACT composite scores that are higher than the Iowa state average.  Even student turn-out is up.  63 percent of the 2014 class took the test.

“I’m very proud, its nice to know our school, and our students are achieving, but again we can’t be satisfied with where we are at, we need to continue to strive for excellence,” said High School Principal Ken Baker.

Forest City’s composite score was 22.4.  The state average is 22.

The ACT exam is used by colleges and for scholarship qualifications.
